Pray for Latin America

Pray For…Latin America

•Population of Latin America – 588,503,542
•Percentage of Evangelicals – 10.59%
•Total number of People Groups – 1,274
•Number of Unreached People Groups – 737

The Latin America are a land of diversity where old inhabitants meet new immigrants and prosperity meets poverty. Stretching from the the Gulf of Mexico to the Antartic Circle, the environments are about as diverse as the people who populate them. Within this diversity lies a history that is amazing in some instances while tragic in others. Today, much of the population of the Americas enjoy modern luxuries and the benefits of industrialization. However, there is great poverty amidst these luxuries. Whether due to discrimination, conflict, government corruption, or natural disaster the Latin America is home to people struggling for the necessities of life. Currently the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti, was struck by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake just days ago leaving tens of thousands dead, unaccounted for, homeless, or injured. Each year the Caribbean is pounded by hurricanes that result in loss of lives and property alike. In addition, the majority of Latin America has been affected by an economic downturn. So, let us pray for all the peoples of the Americas, but especially, let us ask God how he would have us help those in poverty.
